Paper Abstract

This paper presents a method of splitting signals from fast and slow axes of polarization maintaining fibers by using a polarization splitter. The new scheme includes a turning connector and a polarization splitter. The polarization splitter will split signals from a fiber and give two separated outputs. It gives some theoretical calculations and the relations between the turning angle and output power from the splitter. It also analyzes the relationship of electrical power spectrum versus differential group delay and relative angles between the axis of a fiber and direction of a polarization splitter. Preliminary experiments are also given in this paper. The scheme has a great potential of becoming an effective method of solving polarization mode dispersion (PMD) problem.
